Manchester United will wear Juventus style black and white striped kit next season


Manchester United haven't made the best start to the new season. 

After beating Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford in their opening league fixture, things have gone downhill for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

A 1-1 draw with Wolves followed, before an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace last weekend. 

On Saturday, Solskjaer's side failed to bounce back, drawing 1-1 with 10-man Southampton.   

Of course, it's not worth getting too concerned yet, considering there are still 34 Premier League games and nine months of the season to go. 

Even though the 2019/20 campaign has only just kicked off, it seems that United's kit manufacturers are already planning for the future. 

According to The Sun, Adidas will be making a massive change to one of the club's shirts next year, by using a 'Juventus-style black and white striped design'.

It will be featured on one of their 'change' kits - which means United will still be in red and black at home. At the moment, it's unclear if the new design will be for the away or third strip.  


One thing that is certain though, is that it will be very different from what we've seen in recent years. In fact, the last time the Red Devils played in black and white stripes was way back in 1979. 

Although that design has been used on Juventus kits since 1903, the Italian side actually moved away from their classic stripes over the summer. 

Cristiano Ronaldo and co. are still turning out in a black and white shirt, but it's not stripy and fans certainly weren't happy when that news was announced.


With the latest reports suggest that United could be borrowing that design next season, Adidas really have risked upsetting the Juve fanbase even more. 

Still, the news should excite fans of the Manchester club. 

It's just a shame the football itself will make them look more like Newcastle than Juventus.
